hedonism

I'm Leor/Dorian. I'm a fop and an invert. I like pretty things, baking, other men, old shit, and existential crises. I especially like it when any of these things intersect. He/him/his/himself.

#and I just don’t feel entitled to someone else’s life’s work.

That comment exactly!! It’s not mine and I can survive without it, so I will.

This is why honey is not vegan.

The problem here is that honey, especially if you buy it ethically from an apiarist, isn’t actually detrimental to the well-being of the bee or the hive. In the wild, honey is used as a food stock, but in a domesticated honeybee colony, the bees are fed quite well, and so the honey is a surplus.
The alternatives, like sugar, relies on monocrops in third world countries, with transient labour. Growing up, there was a sugarcane field by my house, and I’m sure the Haitian men who worked backbreaking hours hacking a machete through knife-bladed leaves in 40 degree heat for a couple dollars a day would have traded a testicle to be a Canadian honeybee. Stevia’s going the same way, iirc.
Additionally, apiarists are actually huge proponents and activists for sustainable bee-keeping, and it’s estimated that the domesticated hive may be the last great hope for declining populations, because we can optimize their chances for survival.
It’s their life’s work, sure, but it’s not the death of them to use it responsibly.

literally read anything about the history of sugarcane and the cuban sugar industry if you think sugar is or ever has been more ethical than honey

'someone else's life work' white ppl will recognize a fucking bee’s humanity before actual black and brown human beings.

appreciate brown eyes more bc the people with brown eyes are grown up forcing to believe fuckin blue and green and grey are beautiful and either detest or get incredibly happy when someone compliments their eye color stop letting this happen

there are people with brown eyes reblogging this and theyre talking about still being sad with their eye color and this is exactly why we need hype about brown eyes

Hannibal is a dick tho

So I go to let the ferrets out and come back with him sitting on my computer chair. Usually Ginger sits there and she knows when I come and nudge her with my back pillow it’s time to get up and go

Hannibal? Na, he just stays there. And when I sit in front of him he just climbs up the back of my chair and drapes himself on my shoulders and LICKS MY FUCKING NECK HANNIBAL NO.

NO 

DON’T DO THAT.

nooo this is all so cute
